We are committed to helping the DAO, Wonderland, overcome various challenges by offering our expertise and advice. The community has agreed to bring on a brand identity and design team to help give a new spirit and breath to Wonderland and help the DAO reach more investors and VC projects to invest in. The past month has been interesting, seeing the events develop in the land of wonders. We have seen people getting liquidated. With all the downside revolving around the treasury and the dramatic situation, including Sifu, it was hard to realise this could ever have a good outcome. However, we stuck our heads together and discovered a spark emitted from the dark times.
We started working on this project when everything was on fire, and there was no existing proposal. Since then, we understand much has happened, and we decided to keep the original work that truly represents our unbiased look at Wonderland.
Some of the things we are thinking of doing to enhance the DAO’s operations include redesigning Wonderland’s entire brand, including website, dapp, iconography, UI/UX. We would also like to develop marketing materials that include announcements, news, and changes. We are intensifying our efforts towards Frog university, where we could educate everyone, especially the newcomers (frogs in the tadpole) through animated visuals, stop FUDs through short videos, how to use services (current and upcoming), podcasts, and AMA summaries.
We propose to characterise the board of directors by showing their physical presence online and linking them to a fantasy character living in Wonderland. We thought it would be amazing to create frog mascots linked to specific content output to enhance our identity. This way, we make sure that the Frog Nation receives more gravity, is more connected and will be more trustworthy in the long term.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to a continued healthy partnership. Thank you.
Yassine and Hyke,
